The Tooth Fairy
I took her straight into my sewing room and let her pick out some fabric for a fairy pillow. She opted for several pink and brown strips I had left over from a jelly roll.
I stitched them all together lengthwise. There were a couple tails that were a little longer so I snipped those off and tucked under the sides on it and used it to form a little pocket to hold her tooth. Then I folded over the whole piece of fabric once so that the right sides were together and stitched along the three sides that were not attached. I left open a 4"-5" opening to turn it and stuff it. To close it up I did a simple hidden stitch by hand (I think it's also called a ladder stitch).
